“I am an artist exploring my new landscape... I do this by taking impressions with slabs of clay and translating them into functional objects for you to use. They are truly ceramics that work.”

When Heather heads out for a walk in the neighborhood, she’s actually on one of the coolest scavenger hunts ever. She packs up a wagon, a rolling pin and slabs of clay then goes hunting for interesting surfaces to imprint into the clay. It could be a road sign, a cap embedded in the sidewalk or the leaves of plants around her house. Since she’s schooled in ceramic sculpture and has long worked in galleries and studios, she takes those little snapshots of her world and turns them into herb markers, coasters and other useful objects of beauty. Using glazes, oxidation and other techniques sparingly lends her ceramic work a simple, vintage quality—and allows those curious textures of her world shine through.
